Apple "Apple's new iOS 7, which the company unveiled last week at its Worldwide Developer Conference, says a lot about the future of mobile devices because Apple owns the future of mobile devices." If you're an Apple fanatic, you're going to love this article. If you're not an Apple fanatic, you'll be shaking your head in disbelief that the once great AppleInsider runs stuff like this these days. Hey, there's always MacRumors - the last great bastion of proper Apple rumour reporting.

IF high-end phones from HTC Sony and Samsung are all comparably priced, why is it then that the margins are much thinner for HTC and Sony than for Samsung?

Samsung produces more of their components (CPU, memory, screen, etc.) in house and thus has better margins.

OK, what I actually tried to say: Why is it, if the margins seemingly are the same (just a little bit better for Samsung because they make a lot of the chips themselves), that Nelson said margins are razor thin for manufacturers other than Samsung. I think building cost $150-200 / selling price $500-600 are not razor thin margins.
